Does anyone know what the Japanese words to Teo Torriate Mean? It must mean what the song says in english, but I took Spanish for one year so I know sometimes the words in a different language mean the same thing but are changed slightly from the english.
Thanks. If this is confusing, I'm sorry. Lol.

"Te is Japanese for the word hand. O is the partical that indicates the object. Toru means to take. Toriatte is the form of the verb that means please take. More polite would be toiatekudasai. The phrase means please take my hand.

A literal word-for-word translation would be as follows:

Teo: hand/hands [doesn't distinguish between number]
toriatte: hold
konomama: as it is
iko: go

Aisuruhito: to a loved one
yo: dear

Shizukana: silent
yoi: night/dusk
ni: in/at

Hikario: light/lamp
tomoshi: turn on; connected with fire [very poetic expresion]

Itoshiki: lovely
oshieo: a word from God/instructions/something given by a
respected or highly educated person or persons [a
very religion word]
idaki: keep/have

Note that the Japanese consider "toriatte" as the correct spelling! "

S. E. R. R. Y. Like "Sorry" but with "e" instead of "o".

I've never been to Japan. No. But I like learning different languages and just wanted to know what the translation of the song was. Thanks Serry. Hope I did that right this time. Sorry if I didn't.
